Iron Harvest review

Iron Harvest is an alternate history RTS in which the great empires of the early 20th century invented giant stompy robots with machine guns for heads and spinning blades for arms. Inspired by the work of Polish artist Jakub Rozalski, who paints smokey pastoral scenes loomed over by grey machines lumbering across hazy horizons, the game depicts a world in which the mechanization of warfare…

Stompy steam-powered strategy Iron Harvest is out now

Shovel the coals, light the fires, and let's get this walking affront to nature moving, lads. Dieselpunk army-smasher Iron Harvest is out today - a whimsical alt-history RTS romp that revisits the various imperial death throes of pre-World War 1 Europe and imagines how they'd play out with a few dozen giant robots. The cockpit isn't ours, but today's launch means we can finally take…

Iron Harvest’s dieselpunk mechs enter open beta next week

Forget your Gundams or your Battletechs - I like my mechs rusted, broken and held together by bolts and prayer.

The alt-history RTS enters open beta next week, giving us free rein of its turn-of-the-century mechs ahead of its launch proper on September 1st.

The best Steam Festival demos: RTS and city builders

Since the Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition has so many demos in it, we've all run off to harvest our own little crop to recommend, picking different genres as our guiding principle. As ever, though, the concept of "genre" has tripped me up like a rake in the dark, and left me flailing to define what connects the six games below. I guess, if there's…

Iron Harvest stomps into pre-order multiplayer alpha

Stompybot alt-history RTS Iron Harvest is available to play now, if you don't mind getting in on a slightly wobbly ground floor. A major Kickstarter success earlier this year for developers King Art, it looks a lot like Company Of Heroes but with ungainly dieselpunk robots instead of tanks and set in the '1920+' universe of artist Jakub Różalski. While a full story campaign is planned,…

1920’s mech RTS Iron Harvest is a Kickstarter success

I'm not sure if I subscribe to the idea of 'Kickstarter Fatigue' being a thing, but it's hard to deny the increasing difficulty faced by games finding their footing via crowdfunding lately.

It hit its initial Kickstarter funding goal within…

Iron Harvest puts an alt-history spin on Company of Heroes

If you're the kind of history buff who also likes big stompy warbots, you've probably seen the art of Jakub Różalski around. His most famous work depicts an alternate 1920s where a technological boom after the first world war led to the early development of gas-guzzling mechs, often depicted standing incongruously amidst otherwise-idyllic farmer's fields.The 1920+ setting (as it's officially known) has already been used in the board game Scythe,…
